France are opening their World Cup campaign against England today, and at half, Les Bleues are leading 1-0 and cruising, thanks to this golazo from French forward Eugénie Le Sommer.
France are ranked third in the world and one of the favorites to win the whole thing, precisely because they have so much firepower on offense. Le Sommer has been called the most dangerous of France’s many options, and when England turned the ball over 25 yards from their own goal 29 minutes into the game, she showed why.
After one touch to settle herself, the striker unleashed a shot that beat California-born keeper Karen Bardsley in the top corner. Great goal.
